FREEPORT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Beginning tomorrow visitors to Maine State Parks can take Geo Tours that could lead them to some great hidden prizes.

If you're not familiar with Geocaching, the best way to describe it is a modern day treasure hunt.

Using GPS coordinates he downloaded from special website Gary Best of the Division of Parks and Lands is showing us how to find a box hidden somewhere inside Wolfe's Neck State Park in Freeport.

People who collect stamps from the boxes at all 8 of the Geocaching State Parks will be entered into a drawing for prizes, including an Old Town canoe. It's the latest incentive to get people to explore more of Maine's State Parks.

"That's exactly what we're hoping to do. To use some of the new technology to get people to enjoy the natural resource that they have available to them", said Will Harris of the Bureau of Parks and Land.

The website to find the GPS coordinates is Geocaching-dot-com. It goes live at 8am Tomorrow morning and the state parks officially open at 9am.
